Pou Chen Assessment for Accreditation

The FLA Board of Directors voted on June 20, 2018, to accredit Pou Chen Group’s social compliance program.

Pou Chen’s accreditation comes after the FLA conducted six SCI assessments in Bangladesh, China, and Viet Nam; two field visits to shadow internal audits and training in Indonesia and Viet Nam; and a headquarters visit in Taichung, Taiwan.  

The accreditation report specifically recognizes as strengths Pou Chen’s transparency in remediating labor violations in its production sites, investment in social compliance training, and multiple grievance channels.
